This week, we get to the roots of the conflict caused by the Danish Mohammed cartoons. We speak with Leena El-Ali, director of the Muslim-Western relations program at Search for Common Ground. Plus, we investigate the growing list of officials who have resigned or been pushed out by the Bush administration. TomDispatch.com editor Nick Turse tells us why the list is so large - 243 and growing. Also, we put President Clinton's economic advisor in the hot seat. Gene Sperling is the author of "The Pro-Growth Progressive." We'll find out how he'd advise President Bush to fix the economy. Plus, why are so many Iraq war veterans running for office - as Democrats? We check in with Andrew Borene, an Iraq vet who's running as a Democrat for Minnesota state senate. He weighs in on what we can learn from the case of fellow Democratic vet Paul Hackett of Ohio. Finally, mainstream reporter Morey Meniscus goes hunting with Dick Cheney. Grab your body armor and come along!

Air America - Danish Mohammed Cartoons Unrest
Track one I enjoyed the most. I have to admit when I downloaded this that I did not realize this was a show which was featured on the now defunct Air America radio station. I am not sure why but something about the underlying values of people who were involved with Air America and the actual lack of personality over the airwaves made this whole left wing political media thing unable to last. I give this episode three stars.
